Hi @KObermaier , 

 

We can see the following warning within your account advising that you need to complete additional account setup to access CMS tools (like blog posts). https://app-eu1.hubspot.com/account-verification/25213890?source=LANDING_PAGESScreen Shot 2021-11-23 at 2.50.57 PM.png

Hi @KObermaier ,

 

Thanks for reaching out! I do see that you have started the "Create a Blog Post" practical, but it has yet to be completed. The post will need to be created after the blog itself. Can you provide a link to the post you've created so I can take a look? 

Best,

Hello @KObermaier ,

 

I see you've created a Blog, but not a blog post yet. Here is where you would create this post https://app-eu1.hubspot.com/website/25213890/blog/posts and here is a guide on how to do so https://knowledge.hubspot.com/blog/create-and-publish-blog-posts.

Many thanks Ryanne,
As you can see from the pic below I have no access to create a blog-post as the button is not clickable.....
